Joint Bank Accounts
October 13th, 2006 by Questions
I was wondering what happens with joint bank accounts when one spouse goes bankrupt. I am unemployed but because my husband works away from our house (travels) we have joint accounts so that I can pay for bills and living costs. One account his pay is put into and is used for daily things, the other account is a small nest egg of about $5000. If I go bankrupt, what will happen to this money, since about 99% of it is from his income?
